The\nmotivation b ehind this theory arises from the study of correlations in\nquantum networ ks. We will give a state analog of Artin's solution to\nHilbert's 17th pro blem showing that state polynomials\, positive over\nall matrices and matr icial states\, are sums of squares with\ndenominators.\n\n \n DTSTAMP:20230609T140731Z END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
